[Aurora Alert] Aurora happening NOW. Aurora and Geomagnetic Alert and Aurora Watch (5 August, 2019)

UPDATE to UPDATE: G2 storm now, Kindex 6, but  Velocity: 660 km/sec Bz: 3.0 nT Density = 4.0 p/cc.

UPDATE: aurora have been spotted in STAWELL Victoria, reasonably far inland. Go and look people. 

Aurora are currently visible in Tasmania (Exeter, South Arm) and Port Campbell Victoria The SWS has issued an aurora and geomagnetic alert for now (G1 storm in progress) and aurora watch for  tonight 5 August due to impacts from slow moving coronal mass ejections. 
Currently the local Kindex is 5, and the solar parameters are good for aurora, Velocity: 575 km/sec Bz: -10.0 nT Density = 7.0 p/cc. 
If these conditions persist aurora may continue to be be seen in Southern Australia under dark sky conditions. The Moon is waxing but is an early crescent and will not really interfere with seeing aurora. Be patient, as the activity may rise and fall of the magnetic polarity of the wind may fluctuate significantly.
Dark sky sites have the best chance of seeing anything, and always allow around 5 minutes for your eyes to become dark adapted.

As always look to the south for shifting red/green glows, beams have been reported consistently over the last few aurora, as well as bright proton arcs and "picket fences". A double arc,  blobs, and curtains were seen in Septembers aurora  last despite the moonlight.
